See the contest description for more information.
Elizabeth Reid, an MIT graduate student, wrote a masters thesis
describing the design and results of the contest.
There were teams that were "finalists" who were invited to present their designs at the SIGMOD 2009 conference. The teams are listed below, with links to their code and implementations:
